Gokukoku no Brynhildr Episode 1 (First Impressions): Puni puni arms

I've always been curious about the point where science meets magic. That's pretty much the reason this show is being given a shot. The basic synopsis is the main character Murakami Ryouta meeting the transfer student Kuroha Neko, who reminds him of a girl from his past who he believed to be dead. She then predicts his death and proceeds to save him with some sort of artificial "magic". Her magic seems to be in the form of augments of some kind.

There are some strange pieces in the episode that I still need to reconcile. Neko mentions a lot that she knew that people were going to die, but she only finds out about updates in these predictions through a radio. Is the radio not actually connected to another person or is she just using really strange wording? Normally you wouldn't insist so hard that you knew something was going to happen without having seen the future yourself, right?

Anyway, everything about this first episode suggests that Neko actually is Kuroneko...mostly because they try so hard to disprove it. She mentions researchers, which means all kinds of things could have happened to her. I'm on the fence about this show. I might be willing to keep watching, but we'll see how the rest of the season turns out. The music wasn't really making a good case for the show, though.
